    I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START.THIS WAS AN ALL ACOUSTIC SET, OR AT LEAST IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE. J. PLAYED FOR AN HOUR AND 1/2 AT LEAST.THE GUITAR PLAYING WAS PHENOMENAL.HE HAD A PEDAL ON THE FLOOR THAT HE WOULD RECORD THE RYTHM TRACKS OF CERTAIN SONGS ONTO SO HE COULD PUMP THE SOLO’S WITH ELECTRICITY AND PLAY THE RYTHM TRACK IN THE BACKGROUND. J. PLAYED 2 ELECTRIC SONGS WITH THE VOCALIST (ON BASS) AND DRUMMER FROM COBRA VERDE.THE MAGIC STICK ONLY HOLDS ABOUT 300 PEOPLE MAX SO IT WAS THE PERFECT VENUE FOR A SHOW LIKE THIS.I WAS STANDING BEHIND A GUY WHO WAS SITTING ON THE STAGE LEANING ON J’S MONITOR. J. WAS 6/7 FEET FROM ME.ANYTHING ELSE I TRY TO SAY WOULDN’T DO THE SHOW JUSTICE.I WILL SAY THIS,TICKETS WERE $13 AND AFTER THE SHOW I FELT LIKE I OWED J. $50 CAUSE I’VE SPENT $60 AT OTHER BANDS SHOWS AND THEIR PERFORMANCES DIDN’T COME CLOSE TO WHAT I GOT LAST NIGHT FOR JUST OVER $10.THIS SHOW MADE IT INTO MY TOP THREE SHOWS OF MY LIFETIME.

    Strue1,Welcome to the boards, and thanks for the review. Lou Barlow will be at the Magic Stick on Tuesday, are you going to see him?
    I might go. The last time he came with Sebadoh, they did play Poledo.

    Hey strue1, welcome and thank you very much for the review <img>

    It’s always cool to read what other fans see and feel at J’s live shows. … and it somehow shortens the time until I can see him live again myself <img>

    And thanks for the story about how you became a Dino fan. I got into Dino around the same time, when I heard ‘Let it ride’ on the radio …
